Application Note: Produced Water Purification
The Liaohe Oilfield is the largest heavy oil production field in China with 10,000 oil wells and a production capacity of 250,000 BPD (12,500,000 T/year). Using a steam simulation process, the oilfields produce 20,000 m3/day of produced water. The objective of the produced water purification project was to provide water quality suitable for feed water to the high pressure, once-through steam generators
